  • New BJJ Program

    Hello everyone! We're another week into November and closer to the holidays, the tests, and the end of the year. Starting this evening, you may notice some Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu classes happening on unoccupied mats at Krav Maga Raleigh.

I don't think I can say anything new about them, just that ....
